Description

Look after my little sister. That's been my life's purpose up until now, but now with a sister who has married the King, physical injuries I'm still healing from, and mental ones that run far deeper, I'm completely lost. I've spent my life as a hunter & an assassin with my sister, but unlike her, I remember and regret every person I've killed. As a boy, all I ever dreamt of was earning a job as a guard and becoming a father. Now they both look far out of my reach. Everything seems so dark. Except her. Lynna. Famed for her beauty, then world-renowned for her intelligence, she has thousands of men holding out for a chance with her. She refused to marry even the King. I'm not foolish enough to think I'd be good enough too... am I? Staying away from her seems like the sensible option, but when the King assigns me as her bodyguard for the week, I'm left with no choice. -------- Like all the other noble-born women, I spent the early part of my life in finishing school, being trained for one purpose; marrying the King. Ironically, it was him that helped me out of it, and set me up with the career that has led me to becoming one of the greatest healers of all time. My job, my titles, my fame, my appearance; often they feel like curses rather than blessings, and I doubt I'll find anyone who wants me for the girl beneath it all. Sometimes even I lose sight of her too. It's been so long that I've felt genuine emotions, one's that aren't just orchestrated for the newspapers or the crowds outside my house, but Onyx makes me feel... different. He looks at me with those yellow eyes and I feel like he sees into my soul. But he is a tattooed assassin, with a less-than-friendly temperament and no direction in life. To my famous parents, I am the ultimate bargaining chip; the most desired woman on earth. I'm not foolish enough to ignore the power and influence they have over the world. If they don't want me to be with Onyx, they'll find a way to remove him from my life.
